Event description
VU PHL is organizing gift donations & creating holiday cards for Turning Points for Children! There are virtual & in-person options!!

About this event

VU PHL is partnering with a great organization, Turning Points for Children to organize gift donations and make holiday cards. This event has limited in-person capacity, so we recommend signing up early if that's your jam. No worries if you miss out on in-person though, because we will be coming together over Zoom if you'd like to volunteer virtually! That's right folks, there's a lil something for everyone this time around, just how we like it.

About Turning Points for Children:

"Turning Points for Children brings social and health services to vulnerable people. Our work is built on the foundations of wellness, safety, diversity and collaboration. We believe in the power of resilience and possibility.

For more than 175 years, we have served youth and families in Philadelphia. In the earliest years, services were primarily related to placement (foster care, group homes, residential treatment and adoption). With the beginning of family support services in the early 1970’s, the legacy agencies to Turning Points for Children began to provide in-home and community-based services. Chronic poverty is at the root of many of the issues our families face, so our prevention programs are designed to look especially at difficult family relationships, child abuse and neglect, teen pregnancy, high dropout rates, unemployment and inadequate health care.

Turning Points provides its programs and services almost exclusively within the city of Philadelphia. We now serve more than 17,000 clients."

Organizing gift donations & making holiday cards with the VU Crew:

We will be working to create holiday cards for individuals served by Turning Points for Children over zoom. If in person, we'll be organizing the gift donations Turning Points for Children receives.

Are there any other details I should know before signing up?

We're so glad you asked!

We strongly encourage registering early because the in-person portion of this event is limited to only 18 volunteers, wearing your favorite festive holiday sweater, and taking public transportation if possible if volunteering in-person.

The in-person & virtual events will be occurring at the same time, so this is an either-or situation, you do not attend both!

Organizer Volunteering Untapped Philadelphia

Organizer of VU PHL & Turning Points for Children December Event: Virtual OR In Person!

The concept is simple - we volunteer with a different nonprofit organization in Philadelphia on the second Saturday of every month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., then spend the afternoon at a local bar for food, drinks, networking and fun with fellow, like-minded individuals.

This program was created to give young professionals the opportunity for inspiring and rewarding experiences that will help forge a passion for future volunteering – both with our organization and on their own. Volunteering Untapped was born out of the realization that young professionals in Baltimore, Chicago, and Philadelphia want to give back to their community, but simply don’t know the best way to get involved. We solve that problem.

Our mantra? Volunteering…made easy.
